FFTC publications and website on Asian agriculture Publications

A new development in the publications department for this year is that except for the Center’s Annual Report, all other publications are going to be published electronically. The FFTC management decided that this strategy was more economical, practical and environmentally friendly.
 
Website use

This year, the FFTC website made it a point to upload practically all information regarding its workshop activities (all papers and country reports plus photos). The AP project which has its own link from the main FFTC website http://ap.fftc.agnet.org has helped a lot in generating more visitor hits as it has also uploaded more articles this year.

From January 1-October 20, 2015, the website has registered 256,474 visits or page views. This is higher than the 137,219 visits at about the same time last year. Of this figure, 85% were new visitors with 15%  as returning visitors. In terms of country or territory, the Philippines  remains as    the number one visitor of the FFTC website with 45,152 visits followed by  the United States (22,374 visits) and India  ( 21,988 visits) (Table 1).

From the papers presented during FFTC’s international workshops and seminars for the year, FFTC chooses 10-20 papers and publishes them into extension and technical bulletins. The former are practical information for practical purposes while the latter are recent advanced research for scientists and researchers. They were written by the Center’s resource speakers from different member countries in the region who are distinguished agricultural experts and research managers in the international community. These publications are aimed to be reference materials on Asian agriculture for scientists, agriculturists, policymakers, academicians, researchers and extension workers. Following is a list of extension and technical bulletins published in 2013.

An FFTC online survey reveals that most of the users of FFTC publications are scientists, researchers and students who download the publications and use them as reference materials for their academic or work projects. Extension workers also use them for their training needs.

The FFTC-AP website also contains academic articles on the various facets of agricultural policies. This year, the website has a total of over 800,000 hits with an average number of 2000 hits recorded between September and November.

FFTC and its partner institutions publish a book of proceedings of all the workshop abstracts and full papers just before a workshop begins. An electronic version of the proceedings is also uploaded in the FFTC website right after the workshop.

Starting this year, except for the annual report, all other publications are going to be published electronically. This will include the quarterly newsletters and technical and extension bulletins.
